Low white blood cell count - could this be associated with GS?

Posted , 3 users are following.

So further to my earlier thread. Had another set of blood tests taken before Christmas. Surgery phoned today with the results and said my 'infection fighting' (white) blood cell count was slightly low.

Doc phoning me next week to discuss.

Does anyone know whether this could be as a result of GS?

      No idea Leeds, just know that these cells are showing as being on the low side and the doc wants a chat. Receptionist said it could be stress related which ties in with my previous thread!

      Was just wondering if there was a known link to GS. I dont get to chat with the doc until next Wed.

    Spoke to Doc yesterday.. White cell count slightly low, nothing that concerns her. Bilirubin levels 'very high'. Again this was obv put down to Gilberts and I was told it was nothing to worry about. I once again explained about the fatigue etc and was told to rest well, eat well blah blah.

    I give up, So frustrating.

      Thanks for update. How high was the billirubin? Some gps think its nothing and they dismiss it but actually it is a drag-The fatigue. Just hits you.

      I have found that working on my diet trying to figure out what I eat and when helps.

      Dont give up but dont expect too much from Gps either!
